Detroit Metro Airport opens up pooch potty area

ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) — There's a new spot at Detroit Metropolitan Airport where dogs can do their business.

Delta Air Lines worked with the airport to create the new Service Animal Relief Area.

It's located near gate A-34 of the McNamara Terminal and has been dubbed "Central Bark" by some employees.

A "ribbon-biting" ceremony was held Tuesday at the airport in suburban Romulus.

Inside the relief area are two "porch potties," one with simulated grass and a second with real grass, and even a fake fire hydrant.

Airport Authority chief executive Thomas Naughton says that connecting passengers with service animals used to have to go outside to find a relief area on the international arrivals level.

Now, four-legged flyers have a place all their own to get some relief.
